121130 Birds and bikes

So, to Terras Pill by T100C to view, among other things a big, grey heron and a little egret.

At least I think so.

According to British Listed Buildings (http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-60668-terras-pill-bridge-morval-) the heron pics were taken while the bike was parked on the “road bridge over East Looe River. Probably circa 1825. Stone rubble with segmental dressed stone arch and smaller round dressed stone flood arch on north. Directly to north, remains of Liskeard and Looe Canal which terminated at Terras Pill. In 1825, an act was passed to construct a canal from Terras Pill, up the East Looe River to Moorswater, thus linking Liskeard with the tidal waters at Looe. As canal traffic expanded the canal was replaced by the Liskeard and Caradon Railway, authorised by an act of 1843. The railway was extended to Terras Pill in 1859. Terras Pill Bridge is in a particularly picturesque setting.”
